4. Gradual building up of thicker paint, varied soft and hard edges and detail.
While I am including photos, (above) I strongly recommend that you go to his Facebook page to see some of his own painting photos. Also, his DVD's are terrific!
Below, are 2 photos of my own efforts...the first being yesterday's study and the second is my start on today's set up, with (hopefully) a finish tomorrow.
